Tip #16: Substitute expensive food for cheaper foods.

Instead of dropping 2000 pesos per week on groceries, think hard about which items are luxuries and which items are actually important components of your weekly menu. Eliminate expensive items in favor of cheaper ones.

Tip #17: Buy store-brand products.

Store brand products are cheaper and frequently identical to name brand items. So, instead of immediately paying premium for the name brand product, consider at least trying the store brand once.

Tip #18: Use the slower shipping option.

When it comes to making online purchases, it is often tempting to opt for the fastest shipping. From now on, practice delayed gratification and opt for the slower, cheaper shipping option.

Tip #19: Buy gifts far in advance.

Many people wait until the last moment to buy gifts. As a result, they end up spending a lot of money the day or night before the event simply to get something nice. Instead of doing this, allow yourself weeks or months to pick up the product. Instead of rushing around the night before, you may stumble over it in a sale in the weeks leading up to the event.

Tip #20: Make your own gifts.

Candles, jewelry, and mix CDs can often make excellent, highly personalized gifts. Instead of purchasing a gift at the store, consider making one for your friend or family member.

Tip #21: Take public transportation.

Public transportation is often cheaper than owning, maintaining, and paying for gas for a car. Consider selling your car and making the switch.

Tip #22: Walk more.

Instead of driving your car small distances to the store and post office, consider walking to those places instead. Not only is it good for you, but it will save you money on gas and wear-and-tear.

Tip #23: Purchase a speed pass for tolls.

If the region you live in offers an automatic toll pass, purchase it. It may have a high upfront cost, but it will pay off in reduced tolls over time.

Tip #24: Purchase a pass for public transportation.

Purchase a pass to take the local train or subway system. In the long run, you’ll save a lot of money by paying less each time you use public transportation.

Tip #25: Spend money on entertainment with high re-use value.

Instead of sinking money into video games and other forms of entertainment that cannot be reused, instead focus on forms of entertainment that have a high reusability factor. That is, try to get the most entertainment per dollar spent.

Tip #26: Purchase video games with high re-play value.

Similar to tip 25, purchase video games that can be played 1,2,3, or more times. Don’t settle for purchasing a $50 game that will no longer be enjoyable after a single play.

Tip #27: Limit consumption of flavored drinks.

Flavored drinks are an expensive luxury that frequently is not worth the amount we pay. Instead, take a water bottle with you and fill it up at home using the tap.

Tip #28: Make coffee or tea at home.

Buying coffee or tea at your favorite place can often be a nice experience. However, it is many times more expensive than making the same coffee or tea at home.

Tip #29: Stop smoking.

Smoking is both unhealthy and costly, so quit.

Tip #30: Reduce alcohol consumption.

Excessive drinking is both unhealthy and an unproductive activity. Cut the alcohol out of your budget and your life.

Do and dos

Dos

1. Do make sure you understand all the investments you are making.

Learn some basics on investments before you step in. Only invest in things you understand. You are taking unnecessary risks if you invest simply based on your gut feelings or other people’s judgements.

2. Do invest for long term.

Investments do fluctuate in value, for example stocks and shares. However, this matters less in the long term as the ups and downs in the market will eventually even out. Thinking long term will give your more confidence and ease your worries on fluctuations in the value of your investments.

3. Do invest rationally.

Be aware of how much money you have for investments. Do not put your entire savings into the market because profit is never guaranteed. Use strategies instead of random guesses and media speculation.

4. Do get rid of unprofitable investments.

When an investment is losing your money, sell it. Use the money in other investments rather than letting it to sit there and lose value.

 

Don’ts

1. Do not panic.

Values of investment will fluctuate. Price decline is a norm in any equity market. When its value goes down, acknowledge that the market is volatile and stay calm. Stick to your strategies.

2. Do not listen to rumors.

Be suspicious of ‘insider news’ or tips that promise to earn you big bucks in shortest time. Assess them with your knowledge and judge for yourself. Be your own master.

3. Do not put all your eggs in one basket.

Diversify your investments. This spreads your risks. For example, if you are invested in a stock market, do not just buy stocks from a single company or the same sector. It is safer to earn a little each time and accumulate the profit over a period of time. Never treat an investment like a bet.

4. Do not get emotionally attached to investments.

It is easy to feel emotionally attached to investments that have served you well in the past. However, if they are no longer performing, leave them behind and move on.
